The Inn on Beach - the very best of seaside gastro-pub food and real ales complemented by accommodation, facilities and activities to rival the finest hotels in the country. Eight luxury en-suite bed and breakfast rooms all feature stunning sea views and most a private terrace.

Choose from king sized doubles, twin rooms (which can convert to a super-king) or a family suite, all individually decorated in plenty of contemporary coastal character and chic echoes of New England. All rooms offer tea/coffee facilities, bathrobes, hairdryer, 32” flatscreen TV with DVD player, Wi-Fi access and Cary Arms sticks of rock.

For more independence choose from one, two, four or five bedroom south Devon holiday cottages, for self catering holidays in style. All are sea facing with their own outdoor dining terrace. The designer style of the Inn is reflected in the fresh, chic and contemporary comfort of the seaside living. Our cottages are also dog friendly.

Children are welcomed with their very own Cary Arms fishing net and bait and dogs with a bed and bowl. Resident’s private facilities include residents saloon, billiard room and sun terrace.

Take time to pamper yourself in our Yon-Ka Spa treatment room, which offers deluxe massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. The inn is open to both residents and non residents for drinking, dining and spa treatments. Four holiday cottages offer self catering chic, ranging from a cosy single bed to a four double bedroom, three bathroom cottage.

Created by the de Savary's, this is a perfect place to enjoy chic beach-side living with all the pleasures and freedom of the coast. “What better place to enjoy the freshest Brixham crab sandwiches or a delicious dresssed crab salad with a glass of chilled white wine, than from the sun terraces of The Cary Arms overlooking Babbacombe Bay. We hope to see you soon!.”
